What Is an LED Facial?
What’s the first thing someone notices about you when they meet you? Most often, it’s your facial features – your eyes, your smile, and unfortunately, the wrinkles or blemishes around them. Unsightly scarring, acne, and lines take away from our natural beauty. But in this modern age, these issues are often easily remedied without much downtime and without cosmetic surgery. An LED facial is a non-invasive, pain-free facial rejuvenation option to treat aging skin with no downtime after treatment.
LED facials work to treat acne and acne scarring, reduce inflammation, and decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, and other signs of aging.
How does an LED facial work to provide a more youthful appearance?
LED facials use both red and blue light frequencies to treat different areas. Infrared, or red light, treats the outer layer of your skin, or the epidermis. The epidermis absorbs the red light, stimulating your body’s natural collagen synthesis to hydrate your skin, smooth out lines, reduce the appearance of scars, and improve elasticity. Red light also improves circulation in your face, thereby reducing inflammation.
The blue light is used to target acne-causing bacteria P. acnes, which lives under the surface of your skin. It may also help to calm overactive sebaceous glands that are causing acne and / or oily skin.
LED facials only take about 20 minutes and can be combined with other facials to maximize benefits. For optimum results, you should receive three to four sessions two to four weeks apart, followed by quarterly maintenance. Dr. Rosenstein will review your current skin condition and your outcome goals to determine the number of visits you need.
How soon do you get results from an LED facial, and what should you expect afterward?
Minor results may be visible after just one session. After an LED facial, you can immediately resume normal activity, as there is no downtime necessary. With furthered treatments, LED facials provide overall skincare and rejuvenation.
Can anybody get an LED facial for rejuvenation?
Since LED facials do not use UV light, they are completely safe and won’t harm your eyes or vision. While most people are great candidates for an LED facial, there are some who need to avoid them. If you are currently using Accutane to treat your acne, or currently have a skin outbreak do not get an LED facial, as this may increase the sensitivity of your skin to light.
